Jason Morningstar’s newest game, Fiasco, is available as a pdf at Indie Press Revolution. Here’s the blurb.
It seemed like such a good idea at the time.
Fiasco is a GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with six-sided dice and no preparation. During a game you will engineer and play out stupid, disastrous situations, usually at the intersection of greed, fear, and lust. It’s like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it’d take to watch one.
My regular group playtested an early version of the game. Though we had a rough time with the rules, I like the game. It allows you create interesting premises and then find out what happens when everything goes wrong. I haven’t played the published version and I know that this version is more streamlined and easier to understand than the version we played. While my regular group will probably not want to play this again (but they may surprise me), I’m most likely going to pick it up. I’m sure I can find some folks who would be interested.
By the way you should seriously check out Indie Press Revolution if you haven’t already. A slew of fantastic games are available there and they have super fantastic customer service.

Thanks for the heads up! I read on Jason’s site that he had sent the pdf to IPR, but I hadn’t checked back since.
I playtested Fiasco at MACE last year, and had a lot of fun with it. I just ordered it, and I can’t wait to get it!
I am really psyched to try out Fiasco. I helped with a very very early alpha of the rules, I know it’s come a long way since then. 🙂
Our playtest was very, very early also. I know Jason has listened to all the feedback on the game and it has been run through the wringer. From what I heard it is smoking good fun.
